During the coronavirus prevention and control period, about 3,886 Yangon Bus Service (YBS) buses are being operated in Yangon region recently, according to a media conference held at Yangon Region Transport Authority (YRTA). “The number of passengers has significantly increased to 0.1 million in late July,” said YRTA Joint Secretary U Hla Aung. The number of YBS passengers declined to start in March 2020. April has a lower number of YBS passengers.
Two months after the outbreak of the global viral disease, the restriction has been lifted and the number of passengers has increased again in May and June. Although the operation of YBS buses was reduced in the pandemic period, 88 per cent of YBS buses are resuming their operation currently.
At present, the universities and Yangon airport are still closed and the YBS buses operating those routes are still suspended. About 56 per cent of people are using the YBS buses, as usual.—Myint Maung (Translated by Hay Mar)
